electrical switch bug? (doesn't let me flip switch in make mode)
so i loaded a level in the level creator and was wanting to change the electrical switch's position (i didn't add it at this point, i just loaded it in the editor and it was there from last time i saved it). The icon to flip it is not showing up. If I add a new electrical switch, the icon is there for the new one. I looked at the settings for the one that was not giving me this icon, and it had all the default settings already.

there's no icon to even remove it either. But if i lock that electrical switch, and within the selection box around it i hold the mouse down and drag it within said box, the trash icon shows up.

Sometimes the icons don't show up because something is in the way. Move the item away, then the icons should show up. Then you can flip the switch and move your item back to where you want it.

If you have that contraption saved could you upload it to the workshop and we can take a look at it? Thanks

Also, any chance that it got locked in place when you were working on it previously?

The rotate icon gets disabled when the part is locked.

it's uploaded and the level name is lame. i think this is the URL:

Pyren, same problem wether it's locked or unlocked.

Ha, okay -- apparently once you've locked a switch, it can never be rotated again. Thanks for catching this.
